What’s new for CPES2018?

Past attendees of CPES have spoken and we have listened. CPES2018 delivers more of what you need:

  • More time to network, to develop the partnerships that are key to your success.
  • Fewer product-focused presentations and more industry panels that tackle the challenges facing your organization.
  • Greater focus on helping startups and early-stage companies with the addition of a Startup Launchpad to our existing Startup of the Year Award and mentoring program.
  • An emphasis on supporting diversity across the industry ecosystem with our new Women in STEM program.

Why should you attend?

“What hasn’t changed is how we help you make contacts that matter – this distinguishes CPES2018 from other industry events,” said Mark Majewski, CPES2018 co-chair and President and CEO of intelliFLEX. “Nowhere else can you find such an impressive concentration of senior decision makers and innovative organizations from across the global supply chain in such an intimate and inviting setting ideal for networking and business development.”

Rub elbows, share ideas and gain insights that will make a difference for your team and your organization:

  • Industrial companies active in printable, flexible and hybrid electronics can showcase their products, services and market leadership to potential partners and customers.
  • End users and brand owners eager to add intelligence to their products can engage with innovators and integrators that can help them capitalize on the Internet of Everything.
  • Academic and public sector researchers can align their work with market needs and find new opportunities for collaboration with their peers and with industry partners.

Building a robust ecosystem through diversity

The organizing committee for CPES2018 continues our tradition of having strong female leadership, which is reflected on intelliFLEX’s Board of Directors and Advisory Board.

“intelliFLEX supports diversity and recognizes its value to drive an industry forward,” Kallai added. “A new Women in STEM program at CPES2018 will feature our first Women in STEM Award, as well as a special session where women leaders in our industry will discuss how best to nurture greater female involvement across our ecosystem through intelliFLEX programs.”
